Colonel Cabatac (My Highschool CAT instructor) used to tell me that it's not Tactics or Strategy that win a battle, but Logistics. If you look at most, if not all the battles shown in IS so far, it pretty much IS Logistics that saves them in the end.

More like unknown power-up are what saves them in the end :P Well, theoretically Tatenashi should also be good at tactics/strategy since her title of strongest in the school is not just for show.

However, if you are weak, you need extremely high logistics, since your body can't do everything according to the logistics. The best would be to have both.

@Kuroi, can you check the chapter titles for Volume 7? The more I look at them the more I think I made some mistakes.

- What the hell--WHAT THE HELL---Do you even know what the word 'Logistics' means?

Put simply Logistics is basically making sure you have the equipment you need when you need it and where you need it. There are entire college/university level courses in both Business Management and Military Doctrine on Logistics and Operations Management. It has its own mathematical formulae. The best known practical and non-military example of logistics is JIT (Just In Time) processing, pioneered by Toyota.

How does all of this relate to IS? Well---In the case of Ichika it's Byaku-Shiki evolving just in the nick of time, or the add-on systems being added to the girls' equipment, or the arrival of Akatsubaki in time for the Silverio Gospel mission, or...

Put simply, if Ichika and Co. did not have the equipment/upgrades they needed at the time they needed (and that includes Akatsubaki's recharge/healing/whatever ability), they would have been totally trashed long ago. As it is in the novels, they already are getting trashed soundly. It DOES NOT HELP when the person supplying your equipment and upgrades also happens to be making stuff for the opposing sides.

Jesus H Christ, Tabane should work for Anaheim Electronics....

The other chapter title beside the epilogue is fine. The epilogue should be titled "The moon on a beautiful night"

No need to bring in mech WMDs. xD

On another point, in all 7 volumes, have we ever knew what happened with Ichika's parents other than the fact that they abandoned their children, were they scientists? careers? maybe we'll try to unlock the mystery behind Madoka.

I'm sorry, was thinking it was another word for 'logics'.

Maybe Ichika's dad has an illegitimate kid and the kid is actually Madoka?

Aannd, after 4 and a half month, chapter 4 of vol 6 finally done. Epilogue should be done in 1 or two more days, or Saturday at the latest.

I still beat you with my "1 chapter in 5 1/2 months".

EDIT: I'll do the final chapter of V4, BTW.

Race? Which race?

Seriously, I really don't know which one. It seems to switch from girl to girl.
